This classic shade of red reminds us of the shiny finish on a brand new tricycle with streamers dangling from the handlebars, candy apples at the state fair, and your favorite metal wagon you had as a child. Compared with Ruby, Tricycle is a bit more subdued, but it's not as dark as Schoolhouse Red.
